HealthcareBoard of DirectorsNonprofit Member
Saint Luke's Foundation was founded in 1963 to support Saint Luke's Hospital's role as a private academic medical center with funding for medical and nursing education, research, charity care, and medical programs. Over the years, the Foundation's mission has expanded to include all Saint Luke's campuses in the Kansas City metro area—Saint Luke's East Hospital, Saint Luke's North Hospital (Barry Road and Smithville), and Saint Luke's South.
The Foundation also secures funding for medical and education programs at other Saint Luke's Health System facilities, including Crittenton Children's Center, The Children's SPOT, Midwest Ear Institute, Bishop Spencer Place, and Saint Luke's Hospice. Saint Luke's Hospital is the primary private teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. The Foundation provides substantial support to Saint Luke's residency, fellowship, and endowed chair programs.
